In TWells, The squash club suffered their first week of total losses this season as all 3 competing teams this week lost.
TWells 4 v Warlingham 1-4
TWells 1 v Bromley LTC 2-3
TWells 2 v Bexley 2 2-3
On Tuesday the 1st and 4th team were away. The 4 team faced top of the table well known Kent Village team Warlingham !!!!! It was always going to be a tough ask as with 3 matches to half way, Warlingham currently sit top of the division 80 points clear of TWells. This proved so as Twells lost 1-4 with a strong performance from "Mrs Captain" at 5 our only win.
The 1st team has a really close battle against Bromley Lawn Tennis Club. With strong wins by "Mr Racketball" and "The Youngster" at 2 and 3, "The Inventor" nearly won the Match for TWells narrowly losing 2-3 for former professional Steve London at 1. With Bromley having a dubious order it was easy wins at 4 and 5 for them so they took the match 3-2.
On Wednesday Twells 2 took on Bexley 2 at home, This match much mirrored the 1st teams efforts the night before. Thou this match could have been a 4-1 to TWells with us having strong wins at 4 and 5. Bexley won three very close matches at 1,2 and 3 in which "Mr Captain" playing at 2 actually had two match balls at 2-2 but we won't dwell in that. :(
